Haaland scores 4th hat trick for City in 3-0 win over Wolves

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Erling Haaland scored his fourth Premier League hat trick of the season to lead Manchester City to a 3-0 win over Wolverhampton as Pep Guardiola’s midweek message got through to the champions. The Norway striker’s three-goal burst in a 14-minute spell either side of halftime lifted him to 25 for the season. That is more than any player managed last season when Mohamed Salah and Son Heung-min shared the Golden Boot with 23 goals. The quickest a player had previously scored four hat tricks in the Premier League was former Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy in 65 appearances. It has taken Haaland just 19 matches to achieve the feat.
